I'm glad you got the good ending ;)

Thanks for playing!

Thank you for playing!

xD

That's not weird at all! The way you described how you feel sometimes is exactly how the creature feels: lonely and definitely desperate to be loved.

Thanks for commenting! <3

I'm glad to hear that! Thank you for playing :D

Yep, the creature is some kind of (creepy) mermaid/merman >:D

Hey, there, thank you for playing and making a video! I like how calm you were playing the game xD

You have no idea how happy I was reading your theories /( ; o;)/~~

Thank you so much for sharing them with me! <3

The concept of needing to love and be loved does come from somewhere! There will be an explanation, I just hope it won’t disappoint :D

Also, maybe this one I can tell you: the lake is important because it’s the creature’s home, it’s very precious to it.

Thank you so much for playing! <3
And thank you for making a video, as well! ;w;

😁

I loved it, great work!
My favorite things about the game: the music and sounds (I loved how the radio music changes by the end); the crows!; the mythos and how the fish kept getting bigger as you fished them xD

Thank you so much for your review!

The more you explore and interact with items, the deeper you get into the story; they pull you into the game. It's an interactive fiction game, after all, so I'm always glad when players actually do that xD

And indeed there is something beyond what the game/story shows you >:D

Thanks for playing! <3

Thank you for playing!

There IS a reason behind the creature's need to love and be loved, but I'm afraid it will have to wait for now as I plan on further developing the (back)story, making it into something bigger/something else! Don't want to give spoilers hehe but I'll happily read your theories if you have any!

(And I'm glad it gave you the chills >:D)

Nice! >:D

Thank you so much for your comment! I'm glad you enjoyed the game <3

There are two endings! :D

Thank you for playing! <3

I confess that I always take a while to find the perfect color palette for a game xD but I’m glad you found unsettling and cute at the same time :D

Thank you! <3

What a lovely game!

I loved the flowing of the scenes, really smooth! Well done 👏🏻

Thank you for playing! <3

There’s more to come! >:D

*_* Thank you so much for playing AND making a video! I loved your reactions! <3

Thank you for playing!

“The Thing in The Lake”

Entry for the Fishing Horror Jam.

*

The death of your uncle does not seem accidental: what does disfigurement have to do with drowning? It does not look like the fish were that hungry for the man's face.

*

Merge yourself in this spooky adventure that will lead you deep into the lake. After all, there is something down there that wants you to. Explore the park and interact with objects and people. And don't forget your fishing rod!

Play it here: https://chiropteram.itch.io/the-thing-in-the-lake

Hey, there!

Ready to play? It’s time to fish 🐟

Be ready for it hehe >:-D

The game is 100% done and so, this is the last devlog :'-)

I confess I thought the game would be longer, but that's okay. The gameplay is about 15-20 minutes long, and it took me exactly 23 days to complete it (felt longer though!).

In the end, I decided to leave it without a background music. As it's a text-based (horror) adventure, I guess it's better that way...

I'm proud of myself for having completed this project, I put a lot of effort and it really paid off! :-)

Well, I guess that's all! Hope you like it as much as I do! Now, I just need to draw a cover and finish editing the game page. I'll launch the game today or tomorrow, we'll see!

Thank you for those who read this devlog and followed me till now :-D I appreciate it!

Have a nice day, everyone :3

ALMOST done! T_T

I love planning everything before starting a project, but I feel like the ending went a bit off script xD
Hope it's for the best...
One last gif for you:

Finishing the last scenes!

(I think I'm okay with the color palettes now ^^)

The next steps are: draw the cover for the game + find some background music.


New devlog coming soon! It includes a gif ;-)

It's been a while ;_;
I'm pleased to say that the game is 50% done!
The other half is already planned and I'm confident it won't take much for the whole game to be complete.
Here's a gif for you:

(Still working on the colors).
Gonna finish this project before the due time, I swear >:-)

Because I’m using Bitsy, I’m not coding anything, I’ll just choose the colors “manually” I guess. But thank you for the feedback :D

(1 edit)

I'm thinking of creating some kind of color "gradient" for the scenes: as you go deeper into the game, the scenes get darker...

Problem is, I hate choosing colors Dx I usually start making a game with some random color, maybe one that has something to do with the main theme. But I'm getting a bit tired of the one I'm currently using (#80a36a).
Gotta choose a new palette soon! ;_;

UPDATE:


"Thing in the lake" vibes *o* thank you!
